A fresh rosé for summer! - 08/2023
Fancy a glass of chilled rosé? According to a recent @Decanter review, our Villa Blanche Grenache rosé 2022 (IGP Pays d'Oc) has “delicate aromas of white blossom🌼and fresh linen open onto a fruit-forward palate that shows notes of pêche de vigne and cherry blossom.🌸 There’s decent weight in the mouth, a swirl of creaminess, and a raspberry pip finish. (…) Considering the price of Provence rosé nowadays, at £11.99 in the UK this offers good value and easy sipping.”
Available at selected independents, via our UK importer by Daniel Lambert Wine Ltd.
A rich, dense wine, full of flavour... - 08/2023
For summer sipping, try our Céres 2022, a rosé made from Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Grenache. Reviewed by Decanter, it has “bright and bold aromas of honeydew melon and freshly sliced apple... The palate pushes forth with big sweet cherry fruit 🍒, good concentration and good length. Quite a rich style in its weight and density in the mouth, but there’s a refreshing pithy note and lick of spice to the finish.” 🍷 Available at selected independents, via our UK importer by Daniel Lambert Wine Ltd.
